Yup, I thought it sounded dubious but just checked if there was a mechanism I'm unaware of.

You're quite right: We use Hz for radio waves, m for infrared/visible/ultraviolet light and eV for X-rays! Maybe it's simply that these fields started out separately before it was realised that they're just different parts of the same spectrum cf. work and heat energy.
